Storyline

An alien race has hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, unbeatable by any military unit in the world. Major William Cage (Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously dropped into what amounts to a suicide mission. Killed within minutes, Cage now finds himself inexplicably thrown into a time loop-forcing him to live out the same brutal combat over and over, fighting and dying again...and again. But with each battle, Cage becomes able to engage the adversaries with increasing skill, alongside Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski (Blunt). And, as Cage and Vrataski take the fight to the aliens, each repeated encounter gets them one step closer to defeating the enemy. Written by Warner Bros. Pictures

Trivia

The landscape and scenery from the "German Dam" are actually from Torres del Paine National Park in Chile (Patagonia). The world-famous location has had the dam added by CGI at a location close to the well known "Cerro de Aleta de Tiburon" (Shark's Fin Mountain). See more »

Goofs

When the drop ship hits a pile of cars, its front rises and its speed decreases; Rita's inertia should either make her hit the front console, or throw her out through the windshield. However we see her being thrown to the back of the cabin. See more »

A Summer Blockbuster Not To Be Missed
22 June 2014 | by (Worcester, England) – See all my reviews

One of the most ingenious film concepts ever created, a cross between 'Saving Private Ryan' and 'Groundhog Day', 'Edge of Tomorrow' is a gripping and clever blockbuster sci-fi thrill-ride accompanied with taut, fast-paced action and compelling direction. Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt form a perfect chemistry that takes them from the training ground, to the battlefield through to the action-bound finale in Paris. The premise of the time-loop has been used many times before, but this time round there are enough exciting visuals and dynamic storytelling skills employed to make this one thrilling (and unexpectedly comedic) flick that is unpredictable and expertly designed. A model of cinematic craftsmanship.
